Trends come and go, but some of the most special trends are the ones that return to us after being absent for a while. The slight nostalgia of a long-lost sartorial style coming back around makes the wearer even more inclined to flaunt said item from the social media rooftops. So what's the trend of the hour we speak of? Summer anklets. We're still enjoying spring, but everyone has already dove headfirst into some of the heavy-hitting trends for summer 2019, including anklets—the jewelry trend we predict everyone will be participating in.
Remember wearing anklets as a kid? Maybe with your jelly sandals, Keds sneakers, or Rocket Dog flip-flops? I know—the memories are so sweet, and thanks to the triumphant return of the anklet this season, those sweet summertime memories are about to multiply. Today, we're about to walk you through the biggest summer anklet styles adorned with pearls, shells, gold, and more. Scroll through and learn about each anklet trend, see how the Instagram world is championing each, shop our favorite versions, and check out how fashion girls are styling their anklets for summer 2019.
Pearls might be the least expected anklet trend of the bunch, but it's one of our favorites. The juxtaposition of something so elegant paired with casual or strappy sandals makes this particular version feel special.
No, this is not just a souvenir you pick up on your way back from whatever tropical destination you just vacationed in. It's an intentional jewelry trend that the sartorial (and Instagram) world can't seem to get enough of. What started with the rise of shell necklaces has now evolved into shell anklets, and the trend could not be more fitting for summer.
Pearls and shells a bit too much for you? Try the subtle yet chic gold anklet trend. We love this grouping because it has many variations including chains, charms, and layering. The sneaky addition of a thin gold anklet or two will make any outfit significantly chicer.
Last but not least, we've been spotting these crafty little buggers all over the street style and Instagram scenes as of late. Anklets in this family are either made from colorful string, beads, are braided, or have some sort of adornment hanging off of them This is the ultimate festive addition to any summertime look.
